Center Stand Option for FZ 09...Questions!
Okay...Figure I should stop hi-jacking other people's thread and actually posted here to see what of the folks think about it.
I have NOT bought a FZ 09 yet but fairly close and all my previous bikes were cruisers. Shadow to be the very last one.
Now, I am opting to install a center stand once I get the bike so I can store it straight up & do some work in the winter.
SW-MOTECH Center Stand For Yamaha FZ-09 '13-'16 & XSR900 '16 from Twisted Throttle is what I am looking at (can't post link due to new member)
And yes, I did looked at the option of getting rear/front stand but they make the overall length too long. Back of the bike will be TOUCHING the garage wall & i have EXACTLY 94" to work with. I can provide a hand sketch if anyone wanna know what I am talking about...
Anyway, my questions regarding to the center stand are:
1. Does this center stand reduce any turning clearance for those have it installed?
2. With the center stand installed, is the center stand along enough for winter storage/changing wheels & sprockets/chain for the rear?
I always had cruisers so I always had my bike up on a bike center lift.
With FZ09's belly design, I do not want to risk of damaging the pipes by using a lift directly under it.
